    i just fitted it it sounds good not as loud as the pipercross i fitted on my 1.8 a3 n/a. but it makes my once quiet bailey dv30 into a bit of a chav valve,but never mind eh.if the maf did play up would i get any warning lights or would my car just feel sluggish?

    The oil catches and holds the dirt particles

    apparantly it helps catch small dust particles which the filter wall cant,and it is also meant to help clean it. I THINK.lol

    aslong as you dont over-oil it mate you'll be fine!
    yes your right, the oil is to catch the tiny dust particles. however after a while all the dust that gets trapped by the oil clogs up the filter, restricting airflow, thats why they need cleaning.
